Electric outboards


ePropulsion and Torqeedo

The world of electric outboards is growing fast. Battery technology improvements have made portable motors up to about 4kW a viable option for small boats, so long as you don’t mind paying a bit more.

Choosing an outboard motor is about knowing how you will use it – how often do you need an outboard motor, is it for backup or is it providing all your required power? How long are your journeys? At what speed?  We will help you find the best motor for you.


“New kid on the block” in the field of electric outboards that can genuinely be considered useful for propulsion (as opposed to trolling motors), Epropulsion. Their 1kW Spirit motor is a direct rival to Torqeedo’s popular 1003 series; it has the same power but delivered very differently (a direct-drive DC motor, rather than an AC motor through a reduction gearbox), with a larger battery, and only one lead to connect. If you are considering a Torqeedo you should at least read about the ePropulsion, see: Epropulsion Spirit motor

They also offer a kayak motor, the Epropulsion Lagoon; and larger more powerful motors in the Navy Electric motors


German manufacturers Torqeedo lead the electric outboard field; we were one of their earliest, and are still one of their largest, UK dealers. We love and have extensive experience of using them ourselves, and our numerous customers who have made the change to electric never look back. The price is higher than petrol motors but the advantages – particularly quietness, ease of use and cleanliness – often outweigh that.
